Inspired by true experiences of grief, girlhood, and growing up, Jessie Barr’s directorial debut SOPHIE JONES provides a stirring portrait of a sixteen year old. Stunned by the untimely death of her mother and struggling with the myriad challenges of teendom, Sophie (played with striking immediacy by the director’s cousin Jessica Barr) tries everything she can to feel something again, while holding herself together, in this sensitive, acutely realized, and utterly relatable coming-of-age story.

Filmed in Portland, Oregon.

"SOPHIE JONES is a lovely film. Moving, confident and unusual. I love Jessie Barr's direction, the quiet of the film and the compelling performances, particularly Jessica Barr as 'Sophie' and Skyler Verity as 'Kevin.' Jessie Barr has made a terrific first feature. I look forward to seeing what she does next." — Nicole Holofcener
